5 Modern Cabinet Hardware Trends We Love

Our decorative hardware consultants share 5 modern cabinet hardware trends they love in the blog below. These statement-making trends breathe life into a space without breaking the bank, making a world of difference in overall design. Consider upgrading the hardware in one room in your home first to see how it looks. We find that the bathroom and kitchen are great places to start incorporating modern cabinet hardware.

Unlacquered Brass Finish

Hardware Consultant: Penny

Unlacquered brass tarnishes slowly, but can be brought to life without much effort. It looks different in every home and every environment, which adds an element of customization. We love unlacquered finishes in kitchens and furniture pieces. Two decorative hardware brands we carry that include unlacquered brass finishes are Colonial Hardware and Alno.

Northport Collection from Schaub and Company

Hardware Consultant: Janice

The Northport Collection from Schaub and Company allows customers to personalize their decorative hardware selections through a series of selections. Round or square? Satin nickel? Ancient bronze? Matte black? The mix & match possibilities are endless! These decisions reflect the character and personality of homeowners and make their home more memorable. We love this hardware collection in laundry rooms.

French Antique or Burnished Brass Finish

Hardware Consultant: Lindsay

French antique finishes – also known as burnished brass – are similar to unlacquered brass finishes with one exception: with proper care they do not tarnish over time. This decorative hardware trend complements contemporary and traditional spaces well. We love french antique finishes in kitchens and powder baths.

Edge Pulls

Hardware Consultant: Kristen

Edge pulls have a clean look with the ease of a drawer pull. They appeal to folks with a modern or minimalist bent, but look great in traditionally styled rooms as well. Two rooms we love edge pulls in are entertainment areas and home offices.

Knurled Finish

Hardware Consultant: Kristen

Knurled finished hardware is fun and functional. It will outlast the post-industrial interior design style and continue to complement a wide variety of other design styles. Knurled finishes are fun in wet bars or “man caves”.
